D.T.P.S M1

Unread postAuthor: Torch » Sat Aug 19, 2006 3:14 pm

Heres my 2nd cannon so far, leave your comments and such.

Name: D.T.P.S Mark1 (Duel Tank Pneumatic Sniper
Type: Pneumatic
Chamber: 2''x40''(131.90 CI)
Barrel: 0.5''x40''(14.52 CI)
Gas Source: Bike Pump
Valve: Modded 3/4'' Sprinkler

Notes:
Bolt Action, Aluminum Support, Weight 8 LB. I got this design idea from the Aussie AUG and the American M-16 rifle to get it a different look. This thing is LOUD when firing it, enough to get the block pissed at me :twisted:.

dowel rods with a nail through it, melt wax it a mold, ice ( very fun), AA bateries, some markers and the list goes on. I personal like these glass viles i have filled with paint. those are really cool and there is zero glass left after a 110 psi shot.
